UFT Officials Prepare for Janus
September 5, 2017|Uncategorized
United Federation of Teachers (UFT) officials prepare for a moderate loss of dues revenue if Janus is decided in favor of employee freedom. Carl Campanile has the story in The New York Post. UFT is the New York City affiliate of the American Federation of Teachers.
The United Federation of Teachers is drafting plans to dramatically slash its $182 million budget — anticipating a Supreme Court ruling that would bar mandatory deduction of union dues from government workers’ paychecks to support union activities, The Post has learned.
The ruling could deliver a severe blow to union budgets by reducing membership and revenues by millions of dollars.
